These plastic free produce/market bags were made using my trusty 60-year-old treadle sewing machine.

The eco bags are made from natural cotton muslin, for lightness and with double seams for strength. They are washable, will last and when you can no longer use them they are biodegradable. Just cut them up, wet and place in your compost bin.

They are great for buying and or storing dry goods or veg. A further use is for straining fruit jellies or cooking a bouquet garni in a casserole.

The approximate measurements of the bags are:
small 13cm high by 14cm weight 9g
medium 22cm high by 23cm weight 13g
large 30cm high by 29cm weight 19g

The small bags are ideal for buying small items or small amounts of items, for example mushrooms or pulses.

The medium bags are useful for larger items, for example carrots or apples or larger amounts of small items.

The big bags are suitable for larger amounts of items. They will hold more than one kg of potatoes.

Available as 2 of each size or a starter pack.
Pack options:
The starter pack includes one of each size bag.

The bags are washable at 40c. I washed one of mine at 60c after it had been used to hold lemons boiling in rhubarb jam. It has shrunk a bit, and is a yellower colour, but survived the process!


My trusty Singer sewing machine came in very handy to create these fabric produce bags. It took me a while to develop a pattern and process I liked. The ones I rejected are now being regularly used by myself and my husband for our regular veg shopping.
